Homemade mojo using a mess of sour oranges, lime, olive oil, obscene amounts of garlic cloves, salt, peppercorn. Let it sit in the fridge for a night.

Stab up the pork shoulder (used 8lbs boneless) and marinate. Let that sit overnight.

About 2 hours per pound at 275, took about 16 hours and pulled it at 195 degrees

I’ll reserve commentary until I see if you have the matching Mackenzie-Childs spoon rest.

Had to ask the wife and I guess we don’t, though we do have a bread pudding sitting under another dome from the same set

Pretty sure me asking is going to make her order one :wtc:

Looks good.

I made one similar a few weeks ago. Also made some bread for the Cuban sandwich... Bread was pretty meh, but the pork was amazing.
Need to do it again.
